POLICE arrested two youngsters for the horrific torture of a cat in Manacor in the early hours of Saturday morning.
According to reports the creatures’ desperate cries woke up residents. They saw a cat tied up and four young people doing unspeakably cruel things to the animal until it died from its injuries.
The youngsters left the cat’s body in the street, although a resident placed it in a rubbish container.
When a Local Police patrol arrived at the scene they set about searching the area for those responsible, leading to the detention of the pair on animal cruelty charges.
The investigation remains open and National police have not ruled out further arrests.

There are an estimated 36,000 feral and stray cats here in Surrey B.C., so many of which are allowed to suffer severe malnourishment, debilitating injury and/or infection by callously neglectful municipal government as well as individual residents who choose to remain silent.
(Progress might also be made by discontinuing allowing pet cats to roam freely outdoors and notably risk them becoming another predator’s meal or some sadistic person’s target for a torturous death.)
When I made a monetary donation to the local Trap/Neuter/Release (TNR) program, a lady volunteer left me a tearful voice mail expressing her appreciation, which to me suggested a scarcity of caring financial donors.
No wonder cat Trap/Neuter/Release (TNR) programs are typically underfunded by governments and private donors, regardless of their documented success in reducing the needless great suffering by these beautiful, sentient animals.
I fear a possible presumption of feline disposability.
Could there be a subconscious human perception that the worth of such animal life (if not even human life in regularly war-torn or overpopulated famine-stricken global regions) is reflected by its overabundance and the protracted conditions under which it suffers? (Frank Sterle Jr.)
